Boyce City2Surfers once again managed to survive ‘heart break hill’ to finish the 14 kilometre course and record a number of ‘personal best’ times.
Apart from the challenge of competing, the real aim for Boyce is to raise funds for the Burns Support Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that provides assistance and support to burns survivors and their families.
All of the work of the Foundation is carried out by volunteers without any government support. This is the third year that Boyce has elected to support the Burns Support Foundation and we are pleased to announce that the total raised this year is more than $27,000.

The carbon charge has now been removed from the fuel tax credit rates for fuel acquired for your business from 1 July 2014. This means you can:
- claim more for many fuels you acquired from 1 July 2014 and use in off-road activities as they are no longer reduced by the carbon charge
- no longer claim fuel tax credits for non-transport gaseous fuels used in agriculture, fishing and forestry activities. For example a fuel tax credit will no longer be available for non-transport LPG used for heating on a farm. Fuel tax credits will also no longer be available for aviation fuels if you are declared by the Clean Energy Regulator as a designated opt-in person under the opt-in scheme. The opt-in scheme has now closed.
